Overview

The late Professor Bury's History of Freedom of Thought is a well-established 'little classic' which has been in steady and continuous demand since it was first published in 1913. Written when liberty of thought seemed likely to become a universally attained ideal, the book is at once a history and a manifesto of a vital human quest whose end has since receded into futurity. For this edition Mr. Blackham has provided a substantial Epilogue surveying, in an historical context, the changed situation in Religion, Education, Parliament, the Press, Science, and in society generally.
